Airline Policy

As it is a privilege that the airlines extend offshore airfares to workers in this specialized industry, we need to ensure that everyone using offshore fares and the associated benefits qualify. Therefore, we follow the airlines’ policies closely and advise our travelers to carry proof that they are indeed travelling for work purposes. Employees must carry documentation of eligibility in the form of a written letter detailing the reason for their travel. You may be asked to produce this documentation during check-in at the airport.
